This album comes from the production of Reckoning by Article 11, and is released to co-incide with the Edmonton production December 12 – 17.
A triptych in movement, video and text, Reckoning is an incendiary theatrical presentation of three separate experiences with Indian Residential Schools, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the fallout that has already reverberated across the country.
The Reckoning EP is taken from the original score composed and performed by Melody McKiver for the first movement, Witness. John Ng’s powerful performance of Witness traces the experiences of a first-generation Canadian reviewing claims made by residential school survivors to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and emotionally processing those traumas experienced by children.
Reckoning EP is dedicated to the memory of Melody McKiver’s grandmother Waa’oo Kathleen Bunting-baa, a survivor of Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School in Kenora, Ontario.
